You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to know eating — or drinking — healthy at a fast food restaurant can be difficult. However, it’s not impossible depending on what your nutrition goals are. Your biggest hurdle will likely be the quality of food, which is often much lower at these places. If you’re an exceptionally clean eater this can be a real issue.
However, it is possible to control the amount of fat and calories you consume. If possible, review the restaurant’s nutrition information before you go and figure out a meal that won’t derail your fitness goals.
